Middle School Academic Program

Growth
On a typical day, students stay together with grade-level teaching staff for literacy, math, science, social studies, and special education.
Teacher teams monitor each student’s academic progress and social-emotional growth and adjust instructional approaches to meet individual needs. Each student is placed into an Anchor Hour learning group, which provides individualized academic and/or social-emotional interventions or extensions based on individual monitoring measures.

Healthy Relationships
Healthy, positive relationships with adults and peers are nurtured in middle school so that all students develop positive self-concepts and relationships with others.
  • We monitor that every student identifies at least one trusted adult which they can
    turn to with everyday-concerns and questions.
  • Counselors, social workers and other specialists provide additional support.
  • Social-emotional learning is embedded into daily instruction and teaches students
    how to respectfully interact with others.

Exploration of Interests
Several opportunities stretch students to learn about themselves, their interests, theirstrengths, and their aspirations.

Seminars
Enrichment opportunities that appeal to students’ individual interests.

Academic & Career Planning (ACP)
At the start of their academic and career planning journey, each student is assigned to a mentoring group of grade level peers and staff.  In 5th grade, students examine critical interpersonal skills such as communication, collaboration, and problem-solving. From 6th through 8th grade, students initiate a purposeful career exploration.

Career & Life Classes
In 5th and 6th grade, students explore all offerings including general music, technology education, art, world languages, health education, and physical education.

Beginning in 6th grade, students can choose to participate in band and choir as a seminar activity.

In 7th and 8th grade, students can select courses which are aligned to their interests and their academic and career plans.  Elective courses include general music, technology education, art, and Spanish.

Physical education is required at all grade levels.

Unique Opportunities
